Q&A with Sidney

How has INSPIRE or the School of Education helped you grow as a future teacher?

Both INSPIRE, and the School of Education constantly challenge my ideas, thoughts, and assumptions for the better. I have become a more analytical and aware teacher, but also person overall working with those in the School of Education. 

What has been your favorite experience as a member of the INSPIRE so far?

My favorite experience on the INSPIRE floor has been learning so many different things about many different topics from speakers, my peers, and the INSPIRE staff. Overall the INSPIRE community is unbelievably conducive for learning and truly engaging with others.

What influenced your decision to become a Peer Leader?

I wanted to become a Peer Leader because I wanted to have a beneficial impact on INSPIRE itself. The idea of being able to advise and support future teachers through the experience that I had last year was something that I knew could have a positive impact on those around me and myself as well.

INSPIRE is a tight-knit community that we like to consider family. The people you meet will change your life for the better.
